SPRING 2019 PHR ASYLUM NETWORK TRAINING
Date: March 2, 2019
Time: 8:30 AM - 3PM
Location: USC-Keck School of Medicine, Aresty Conference Center
The Keck Human Rights Clinic is excited to invite you to a training event on conducting forensic evaluations for asylum seekers. Forensic medical and psychological evaluations serve in court as documented evidence of past physical and/or psychological trauma, and applicants who have a forensic evaluation are three times as likely to win their asylum cases compared to those without this documentation. The training will include sessions on legal background, physical and psychological forensic evaluations, and affidavit writing. The event is also an opportunity to connect with other human rights-minded health professionals and find out how to get involved with local asylum clinics. Breakfast and lunch will be provided.
Who is the training for?
This training is open to physicians, mental health providers (including licensed social workers, MFTs, and clinical psychologists), trainees, and students. PHR asylum network trainings are required for health professionals and students who wish to volunteer with the Keck Human Rights Clinic and for providers who wish to be part of Physicians for Human Rights' Asylum Network. Medical students interested in volunteering with our clinic are now required to undergo training.
